Kevin Hart, Get This, Attacked by Social Justice Warriors for Telling "Jussie" Smolett to "Stay Strong"

There's no rest for the triggered, as that Chris Raygun parody says.

This is Yahoo news so there's going to be a lot of FakeNews here.

Tuesday’s news that Empire star Jussie Smollett was attacked in what Chicago police are investigating as a suspected hate crime has prompted outrage and sadness from several high-profile figures, including Zendaya, Steve Harvey and Cher. Nancy Pelosi called it "an affront to our humanity," while Emma Watson lashed out at the "ugly prejudice and bigotry behind this violence."

Kevin Hart also voiced his disgust at the attack, during which police say the openly gay Smollett was subjected to racist and homophobic slurs while a noose was put around his neck and an "unknown chemical substance" was poured on him. Smollett also confirmed to police that his two attackers shouted, "MAGA country."


Despite the seemingly heartfelt statement, Hart is facing new scrutiny over the homophobic jokes he made during old stand-up routines and on Twitter. The off-color remarks, in which Hart joked about discouraging his son from being gay, caused backlash that resulted in his stepping down from hosting this year's Oscars ceremony. Ellen DeGeneres was also criticized for saying Hart should be given a "second chance."

Hart's critics say the attack on Smollett, a black gay man, illustrates why his homophobic jokes were so reviled.

Meanwhile, of course, doubt grows as to whether there was an attack in the first place. Police have canvased the areas for security cameras that might have caught the attack on tape, but... um... so far they just have video of Smollett walking around. No attack and no attackers.

Also, it turns out Smollett didn't call cops -- a dude who was in his home called the cops. Smollett also told police to turn off their body cameras.


Who knows.

Trump's Amerikkka, man.

Meanwhile, here is a truly savage possibly-racially-motivated beating that will probably leave the victim brain-damaged.

The media isn't talking about this beating. Why is that?

Is it just that some lives don't matter? Are some savage attacks excusable or even laudatory?

Update: Apparently "Jussie" didn't make the "MAGA country" claim in his first statement to police, but then did add it in later ones.

That really adds loads of credibility to this, as far as I'm concerned.
